Meet Garden, a laid-back lady searching for a home where she can lounge around in comfort, preferring tranquil moments over high-energy activities, as she is a certified couch potato. She does love a good tennis ball chase though! She also seems to have a heart that gravitates towards men. While Garden adores male company, she has great relationships with many women at the shelter and would just need someone who can provide her positive reinforcement training to help build a stronger bond with a woman in the home. She has been known to have “selective hearing” towards some women if she doesn’t really want to do something (she sometimes pretends like she didn’t hear them). She has the potential to act similar to a bowling ball so she wouldn’t be a good fit for small kids or other small animals in the home. She may also bark when she sees other dogs so she would do better not surrounded by them, although she has been good with other medium-large dogs. Garden would be a good match for experienced dog owners seeking the ultimate binge-watching buddy.
